2 Questions: recompile xorg sources + xorg git

Hello everyone,

I need some help...

My first question: I'm building "x" from git with the tiny little script 
from http://www.x.org/wiki/Development/git
(at bottom of the page). I've got several "older" (like 1-2 months) 
builds running, which means the xserver starts up.
If i want to recompile the sources on another machine I copy the src 
folder, change the PREFIX and PKG_CONFIG_PATH
in the script and start the build process. The problem is: the server 
doesn't start on the other machine
(which is technically identical to the one which runs the server 
/var/log/ says: couldn't get lock for 
"/home/fl0/mpxsomething/var/log/Xorg.2.log" which actually is a path 
from the
original machine. I thought recompiling the sources should handle 
this..."make clean" doesn't solve this.

I hope this question is not too trivial, but I cannot explain this...

Second question: How do I reset all components of my local git copy 
(like: libXdamage,libXi,hal,mesa etc...) to
a specified date? "git -show" gives me the date-hash for a single 
module...Is there a way to checkout EVERYTHING
from a specified date?

Cheers, and thanks in advance fl0
